This curriculum is being created as a component of the $1 million American Medical Association grant awarded to the IU School of Medicine in 2013, one of only 11 medical schools in the national to receive this distinction.

Faculty will teach students using a teaching electronic medical record and will integrate their knowledge of health systems redesign, patient safety and value-based, high quality clinical care delivery and population health management to help students learn about systems-based care. Dr. Boyd will design and administer the new program in partnership with leaders in the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education and Krista Hoffmann-Longtin, director of programs and evaluation in the Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development.

Dr. Boyd also serves as the associate director of the pediatric clerkship program at the IU School of Medicine and is co-leader of the hospital-based medicine clerkship course development team. She has also served on several IU and IU Health committees, and has been actively involved in the IUSM curriculum reform.

Her clinical interests include patient and family centered care, patient safety and medical education. She holds a medical degree from St. Louis University and completed a pediatric residency and chief year at Riley Hospital.

Dr. Boyd also holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Notre Dame.
